Where is Lapland anyways?

Separated miles apart from a world of bustling streets and pending deadlines is a magic land, so filled with cheer, that the skies illuminate and the snow sparkles. This is none other than the legendary home of Father Christmas, this is Finnish Lapland. Finnish Lapland is located in the Arctic Circle, far, far, away in a place we only envisioned in snow globes. What better place to find Christmas and make unforgettable memories than with a Holiday in Lapland.

All of the fond visions you had as a child, every possible magical Christmas experience you ever dreamed of, is all in one enchanting place, a holiday to Lapland.

So what is there to do on Holiday to Lapland?

A twinkling snow covered winter wonderland of sprawling forests and mountains wrap you in the world’s most unforgettable Christmas experience. A dream factory couldn’t make these memories. A holiday to Lapland is an all out family affair.

Day 1: Your day starts with a a greet at the airport by Santa’s reindeer and friends! No kidding, I mean the magic starts the minute you touch down! A coach transports you to your Christmas hotel or cabin in Saariselk√§, and after fitting for proper weather attire, you’re off in a magical land of snow.

Snowmen, sleigh rides, it’s all there for the taking on a holiday to Lapland. After spending some time making snow angels, thaw out in an aroma-therapy Finnish sauna. Relaxing is part of the magic and a perfect way to finish the most magical first day of your holiday in Lapland.

Day 2: On your second day get ready to sled ride on a husky drawn sled through sparkling snow covered forest to a special secret location! A magical igloo where Santa’s elves are awaiting your arrival for fun and amazement, I’m telling you this place is DRIPPING with magic! There’s so much to do on a holiday in Lapland, it’s just unbelievable.

  • Ice Fishing
  • Snow Hockey
  • Kick-sledding (a crazy Finnish cross between a scooter and a toboggan!)
  • Tandem skiing
  • Mini-skidoo rides for the children
  • Tobogganing

Search for Santa’s secret cabin in the forest and get a private family meeting with him, so special, so unforgettable, and only on a Holiday to Lapland. You’ll have lunch and snacks available, and time to enjoy the log fire. No need to worry about anything but making the most magical memories you could ever dream of.

After the second most unforgettable Christmas experience of your life, there’s a full on Gala Dinner waiting in your hotel! I know, totally amazing right. If you’re staying at the cabins there’s a magical festive dinner there as well. Every detail of this holiday in Lapland has been conceived by Santa himself.
